One day it would be interesting to post what we pull out of sewers and drains

Here is a true story that happened to me

I was in my office when a phone call came in and the voice on the other end was screaming like a lunatic saying "You come here now and get these bums off my property"

I finally calmed this idiot down and got the address and drove to the job site and noticed the following

1- 3/4" snake near the house trap opening

2- Snake end was full of roots and condoms inter twined

3- Mechanic and helper standing with blank looks on their faces.

I finally broke the silence and asked ok whats the problem?

The guy started his going berserk alll over again yelling and jumping like a fish out of water.

I said calm down and tell me what is wrong?

He said "these morons are saying these roots and condoms came out of my sewer and they are soooo stupid as I had a vasectomy years ago"

I looked over and saw the wife standing in a corner looking really frighted , really looking pale

I said mister pay attention and listen very carefully.

"My employees are very conscience of doing the right job and instead of snaking the line 50ft they were thoughtful enough to go the entire length of the snake into the city sewer to make sure your lines were clear up to and past the city sewer and that is where the condoms came from along with roots"

The guy said Oh I am terribly sorry and handed the employees $50 to split between them.

The wife gave along sigh of relief and that afternoon she called to say thank you and asked if I wanted to come over and I said no thank you as I do not like your husbands attitude

Many of the homes I work in were built in 1922 and earlier The Dodge wood estate is really amazing, Phillips Dodge from the copper mining era
